        I mean..I have the frame and I want to put my photo's in. The part that surrounds the outside of the picture and gives it depth.

          You will need matte board and a matte cutter. two fairly expensive items, that if you do not have your work will end up looking crappy. And if you buy a cheep matte cutter your work will end up looking like pooooo!

          I would just take it somewhere and have it mounted or invest ($300-500) in a matte cutting system and learn to do it well, it will take some practice!

          good luck

            dang that sucks. See in my high school the teacher thought us how to do it,but of course we were using the schools materials and equipment.





            I still would like to learn,but for now.....I think I'll take it some where else


            thanks.

              Anyone know who I'd go to for printing fliers at varying sizes? I like using the big online ones because they make it easy. But I need to print a folder and then print inserts that have varying sizes...

              I don't pay for these kinds of things either.

              Mocked-up comps are always useful when showing clients what their work will look like when finished, but a paid subscription to dozens of options...

              This is actually a pretty good example of why a photoshop artist needs to know how to draw.
              The giveaway is the 'floating' guy in the background. He is not grounded properly in the plane....

              I wouldn't pay for a subscription to any free-stock site. The quality is often not there, to begin with.
              Plus, with mockups, for the price of credits, you buy quality pieces as you need them for...

              Hey designers!

              I would like to get some advice on which Mockup site would be the better choice to get a membership on?
